History:

As you gaze around our farm today, it is difficult to imagine that it all started in the 1930s with a tree, determination, hard work, and of course, monks. Flash forward to the 2000s and Abbey Farms finds itself surrounded by a bustling metropolitan area. Houses replaced the surrounding cornfields and traffic lights popped up to control busy intersections. However, one thing has never changed – Abbey Farms’ commitment to deliver wholesome, self-made fun and great memories for family and friends.

The Monks of Marmion Abbey acquired their first 100 acres of farmland in the mid-1930s. Shortly thereafter, Abbot Gerald facilitated the purchase of two adjacent 100-acre farm tracts. Picturesquely, these 300 acres are situated on Kane County’s second highest vista.
